The story of Canadian First World War flying Ace Billy Bishop - A one man tour de force
15 July 2006 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

John Gray and Eric Peterson take their one man show before the cameras in this early 1980's TV special. Peterson, of Corner Gas fame, plays all the parts in this musical play. From the officers and instructors of Royal Military College, to members of the British House of Lords, to Billy Bishop's influential aunt (personal friend of Churchill) all tell how Billy Bishop went from an unsuccessful ne're do well cavalry officer to the most decorated Air Ace for the empire.

This is a great little show. With simple piano orchestrations by John Gray, Peterson's delightful characterizations, this is a very good rendition of Gray's and Peterson's play.
